Hi! Apparently I needed an extended Labour Day weekend from blogging! I'm back now though and I'm ready to get to work! First things first, we need to write some emails. Read this story over at Big Fat Blog then share it with everyone you know; stick it on your wall, Tweet it, Stumble it, Tumblr it, write a letter to your local paper, talk to your political rep, shout it from the freakin' rooftops because THIS SHOULD NOT BE HAPPENING. Full stop. Once you've shared it, email the folks listed at the link and/or below and let them know what you think (politely) and give them an ear-full about fat acceptance, HAES, and as many links as you think they'll read on the subjects we all know and love.
This family needs our help. They're going to LOSE THEIR CHILDREN if there isn't a big enough public outcry over the social welfare office's decision. As Big Liberty said "For everyone who thinks fat hate and fatphobia is no big deal, and is just a personal health issue, please read this and think again." Put that on your walls/twitter/etc in fact 'cause if it can happen in the UK, it can and will happen on this side of the pond eventually.
